The Tel Aviv Magistrates Court issued an injunction against further evacuation of protest tents in the city overnight Wednesday, pending a discussion of the issue involving municipality representatives and protest leaders.

The time of the discussion was expected to be determined on Thursday.

The tents may be down, but the social issues remain

The decision came after lawyers representing protest leaders requested that the court cancel orders by municipalities across the country to clear tent cities.

Dozens of people demonstrated outside the home of Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai Wednesday evening, in protest of the clearing out of tent cities across Tel Aviv.

The demonstration followed a violent protest that took place outside City Hall earlier, in which over 30 people were arrested after clashing with police.

Social justice movement leader Daphne Leef was also among the demonstrators outside Huldai's home.
